Dir: From the intersection of Kildaire Farm Rd. (SR 1300) & Dry Ave., Cary, (where Cary Elementary School is located) and Academy St. begins, take Dry Ave. for .15 mi. to Page St. Turn left onto Page St. for about .10 mi. and it will take you directly into the cemetery.

There are paved roads through the cemetery but no particular area to park. The cemetery is well maintained. Wake Co. land records show 4.9 acres, the property owner as "Cary Cemetary", mailing address "Cemetary St., Cary, NC 27511". The cemetery is in use and there is room for more burials. The current owner of this cemetery is the town of Cary, NC.

I am indebted to Mike Mull, for supplying much of the information that helped me to record this cemetery. I walked the cemetery and verified the information, added and corrected names and dates from tombstones where required.

I completed transcribing from all existing headstones and records Nov 30, 2005.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
